Just Ignore His Supporters

Personal opinion here, but I think it might be best to simply ignore any and all tRump supporters...COMPLETELY. That means not responding to them on social media. It means not responding to them on the streets.

Does it mean they will go away? Probably not. But is it better to give them a voice for their lunacy?

Think back to how you were told to respond to bullies in school. Just ignore their taunts. Eventually they will give up. If they get no reaction, not even a trace, then they should realize you are strong enough to resist them.

With tRump supporters any attempt at meaningful dialogue is wasted effort. They know how we feel and why. They must figure out the truth for themselves and in their own time (if at all).

Focus your energies toward something constructive and believe that you are having a positive impact. My advice. Take it for what it's worth.

1. they are the ones who respond when we make jokes about trump. their favorite line seems to be

snowflake and butthurt.

butthurt is especially funny since they usually use it when we make jokes about trump and post funny pictures about trump.

but i do think the best is to just kind of dismiss them. they certainly are not worth the time to actually debate issues.

3. I feel the same way about ignoring Trump on social media, meaning Twitter

He's only looking for attention - online and off - so I'd never consider "following" him, let alone responding...

4. And when you encounter them in person...

...just look at them with a face that shows the mixture of disgust and pity that you feel.

Very deflating for them.

6. Pretty much

It's like talking to a wall. They don't realize what they have done or don't care. They are making excuses for him. Oh he misspoke, he didn't make up the attack. The two residences in NYC and Florida in addition to the White House make me sick. What a waste of resources. Fuck 'em, they can all go to hell.
